1. ## Angular Acceleration Problem -Help

Hey

currently trying to complete a question and was hoping somebody could help me out. I need to calculate the angular acceleration of following bar setup. (see image)

Ive been trying to calculate the Potential and Kinetic Energy of the situation so that I can solve for the acceleration.

All help much appreciated

I'm a little confused by the question. You are speaking of the angular acceleration of the angle at O? Or the angular acceleration of one of the rollers? Or is it something else?
